Driving to the markets this morning I passed a pile of flat-packed moving boxes on someones verge. Thank you kind stranger! You can’t underestimate the potential of a large cardboard box. I grabbed a few of them and today we used one to make a very quick and dirty cardboard kitchen for little man to play with.
He loved it and spent a good hour making and baking sand cupcakes, which is a helluva long time for a toddler to be focused on one thing I’d say!
I did it on the fly and it took me all of ten minutes. It’s very dodgy and if I were to do it again I’d spend more time on it. Then again, my boy insisted on using real water on it, so perhaps it’s a good thing I didn’t spend hours constructing it, I may have been a little disappointed to see it get wet!
Tomorrow is a new day and a new box, maybe we’ll make an airplane like this incredible one.if you liked this post, you may also like:/span>
